    Where to purchase LOWA Boots?

    Well, my reasonably expensive La Sportiva's have turned into a good lesson on how to throw money away, only about twelve months use, probably 35-40 days hunting tops and they are wrecked (been well looked after just seams and rand/sole falling apart)
    So I have decided I want to see what all the fuss is about and get some Tibet GTX's but im not paying the daylight robbery prices that they go for here (I would actually consider it to support local etc but after the tantrum the distributors threw over the overseas site selling them cheaper, they can go stuff themselves)
    So, can anyone tell me where I can get some? I know that guys can still get them in, best to PM me in case the cry babies read this thread and run to mummy about it.
    Cheers

    I know what you mean about the daylight robbery prices.I think my Dad paid over $700 for his pair.FFS thats some mark up!

    I am not sure if that outfit above will ship overseas,but if your not in a huge rush I could probably sort out a pair through a mate in the UK.

    After my climb the other day, and almost loosing toenails, plus blisters etc, I might have to suck it up and get some decent boots.
    If those prices don't get much bigger with freight etc, I may consider getting some. Is it much of hassle/drama getting them in?

    I can vouch that Lowa are the best boots I've ever put my feet in.

    What other brands have you tried, and in what sort of terrain?

    Admittedly not a huge variety. Nike, Magnums (lol) Paraflex, Magnums and Lowa - the last two I've worn through dust, mud, water, rocks, tussock - pretty much all types of terrain found in NZ except snow whilst carrying a not insignificant amount of weight. The paraflex ones I found extremely slippery in wet conditions - ask @Beavis I was falling everywhere the last hunting trip we were on.

    The Lowas I possess have an aggressive "chunky" tread pattern which helps significantly to gain traction on mud, wet grass. I am very satisfied with them - there may be more comfortable boots out there but I wouldn't be rushing out to change mine in a hurry.
